Thank you for a great 2017 HPDE and race season – see you next year!
Preliminary schedule for 2018:
- April 28th – UMC half track (TBD)
- June 9th-10th – UMC (configuration TBD)
- September 21st-23rd – UMC Full Track
Drivers Education (DE) is an exciting program designed to help you improve your driving skills in a controlled environment while driving on the race track at speed! It’s a great way to learn how well your car, and you, can really perform. Beginners are assigned an experienced instructor to safely guide you on this exciting journey. The Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) is a wonderful facility with lots of amenities like plenty of room for spectators, paved parking and real bathrooms.
You do not have to be a PCA member to participate and you do not have to bring a Porsche to drive. For most events, no prior experience is required; however for the Full track event in September, we do require previous track driving experience. The safety of you and your car are our highest priority so there are safety requirements. These include either an M2010 or Snell SA 2010 or newer rated helmet; shorts and short sleeved shirts are acceptable but you must wear closed toed shoes. No convertibles unless they have factory rollover protection such as Boxsters and 996 cabriolets, OR aftermarket roll bars or cages. Earlier model Porsches and other convertibles will need roll bars or cages installed. Convertibles, T-Tops and Targas must run with the top up.
NEW OPTION! You can get now get insurance to cover that sweet ride during HPDE! click HERE for details. Click on the insurance tab at the top.
Your car must have had a Full Tech within the last 30 days PRIOR to this event (annual tech forms are no longer accepted). You can get full car tech at locations listed HERE. Please check with the shop you select for their fee & schedule.
The Full Tech inspection forms are available HERE.
In addition to the above “Full” tech, PCA National requires us to do a “Top Tech” at the track. This is a very brief safety check and only takes a few minutes so please be on time or you will miss your 1st session.
The Top Tech inspection forms are available HERE
(please bring both forms with you to the track- it helps everything go so much more smoothly!)
Car numbers are required to be displayed on both the driver and passenger side of all cars. Many of our drivers use blue/green painters tape, electrical tape or have vinyl numbers made prior to the event. Vinyl or magnetic numbers are not a requirement but in some cases look very professional and are easier to read. For those of you interested in purchasing vinyl numbers you can do this at your local or online sign/vinyl supplier or as an alternative have one of our Club members make these for you.
